Rob, is the taxi fare page on your transportation link up to date? Wondering if there are some new minimums effective Jan 1st. We are getting hit for $120 from Ixtapa to Zihua from drivers we know and from the street, not dispatch? Also within Ixtapa $60, again from street taxis. Some friends staying at a certain AI told us last night they are paying $100 anyplace in Ixtapa, and this rate is posted in the lobby.....we told them to walk out to the sidewalk!

No rate hike has been authorized for the public taxis. If they are charging more they are doing so illegally and they should be reported to their office and to Profeco.

Once again, if you are getting charged anything but the officially authorized rates by taxis in the street, then you should report them. You should not pay anything other than the posted rates unless you take a taxi from a hotel property or phone for one, in which case there are additional charges.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
